Hidden Exterior

Remember the house next to my in-laws with the great wood siding hidden beneath vinyl? Well now it's wrapped in a lovely pink insulation and they're beginning to reinstall a tan colored vinyl siding. The color contrast does bring out the window trim, but I just can't help but feel that the character of the house is being hidden. They'll probably add those fake plastic shutters to the windows too (the kind with the slats pointing down instead of up). Maybe it's just me but what would have been charming and unique is going to end up looking like just another McBox house on the block.
